Introduction. Physical activity (PA) may improve cardiometabolic fitness and increase high-molecular-weight adiponectin (HMW-Adip). The pedometer is an effective, user-friendly device to monitor PA with the aim of improving health. This study examined how counting footsteps, using a pedometer, might affect HMW-Adip and MetS components among young females. Methods. Fifty-two females (21.43±4.8 years) were divided into “normal”(BMI= 18–24.9 kg/m 2) and “high”(BMI≥ 25 kg/m 2) BMI groups. Participants wore pedometers …
